NY Cabs



Oil
8"x11.5

Another painting from the Karin Jurick, DSFDF . When I saw the photo I knew I wanted to finish it before getting away for a few days. Street scenes are a challenge, but fun to look at a busy activity like this, frozen in time. New York is a 24 hour city and nothing ever stops or slows down. I tried to capture that energy with hard contrasts in the foreground, diminishing into soft hues in the distance.
